PHOTOS: Sarajevo resumes apron overhaul

NEWS FLASH


Sarajevo Airport has commenced work on the final stage of its apron overhaul project ahead of planned upgrades to its runway. The reconstruction of 3.000 square metres of the apron will ensure its durability over the next twenty years. The first phase of the overhaul was completed in 2014, when work was undertaken on an area of 1.600 square metres, while the second phase was concluded last year when an area of 3.500 square metres was repaired. The airport plans to begin work on the multi million euro expansion of its terminal building soon, which is scheduled for completion next year. Furthermore, the upcoming runway reconstruction has been described as an "extremely challenging project", valued at 10.2 million euros. "It will have to be done, since the runway was last upgraded in 1998. We are currently undertaking some studies which will show us in which way, what part and which zones work has to be carried out and whether total reconstruction is necessary. This decision will be influenced by how long the airport will have to be closed for commercial traffic", General Manager, Armin Kajmaković, said last year.
